Pathway Etiquette in Reston

The following are reminders from the Reston Association Multimodal Transportation Advisory Committee on how we can safely share our pathways:

  1. When approaching a walker from behind, a bicyclist should announce "passing on the left” (or “passing on the right” if the walker is on the left side of the path).
  2. Bicyclists and pedestrians should not occupy the center of the path. Two or more bicyclists and walkers should not occupy the entire trail. Stay to the right. 
  3. Remain aware of your surroundings at all times.
  4. Don’t hesitate to kindly remind other walkers and bicyclists of these sensible practices.
  5. Be aware that those with hearing loss may not hear you when you call or approach them.
